The closet of an empowered female stretches further than a gray pantsuit. For Hamilton resident Ruby Rockafella, female empowerment includes fake eyelashes, wigs, drag makeup and even waist cinchers. Rockafella, 31, is a burlesque performer and one of the founding members of Baltimore's newest burlesque troupe, Bawdy Shop Burlesque. Contrary to social construction, burlesque is a raw art form that allows women to explore and celebrate themselves, explained Rockafella. "As girls, we grow up being told what length of skirt is appropriate, when it's OK to speak up, that we have to be 'proper,'" she said.

There is a relatively new restaurant at 1717 Eastern Ave., which once housed one of my favorites, The Spanish Meson. What is the name of the new one and are there any reviews?

Do you ever find that a particular dislike of a food or dish interferes with your reviews? If you hated cheese, for example, and the house specialty was a cheese dish, I would think it would be problematic writing a fair review.

One moment changed everything for Max Major. From the age of 12, the mentalist has been practicing the art of magic.

"That was like real-life magic to me," said Major, 30. "And I wanted to learn everything I could after that about our mind and the way that we're wired!" Major, who lives in Washington but is originally from Carroll County, is bringing his stage show "Think: An Evening of Mind-Reading and Magic" to the Theatre Project at 8 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. and 9 p.m Saturday.

Let's get this out of the way: A timpanist is that cool one in the orchestra who gets to bang on one of those huge drums in the back. Timpani has long been a big part of the life of 30-year-old James Wyman, now in his first year with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. When he was playing the piano at the age of 9, he was also playing the drum set. Moving on to percussion and timpani with youth orchestras in Cleveland, all it took was watching his teacher, Paul Yancich, the principal timpanist of the Cleveland Orchestra, to realize that timpani was for him. And this weekend, his timpani will be paired with a Hollywood classic, as the BSO performs live as "Casablanca" plays on the big screen (performances are Thursday and Friday at the Meyerhoff and Saturday at Strathmore)
